The building and atmosphere ain't much but the food is good and the price is right. We eat here at least one or two nights every time we come to Newport.

Staff very nice. Food is okay. Great place to enjoy a meal with a group of people. Don't expect anything spectacular in the menu, but the variety is nice. Have been several times. I believe it is family owned.

As a frequent visitor to Thailand I really appreciate good Thai. Ordered the 'Tasty Mango' and the flavor from the Tom Yum soup to the entree was excellent. Friendly attentive service and a tab for two of only $20 - can't go wrong here.

The food is average to good -- nothing wrong, but nothing special. The atmosphere is clean and neat, though rather run-of-the-mill. All in all, a decent meal at a decent price, but nothing special.

When we pulled up I had a few reservations, it doesn't look that great from the outside but the food and service was excellent. Before our meal we were served sweet coconut soup, Amazing! So delicious. A place you won't regret.

I love this restaurant. It is the number one Thai place for my best friend and I. I usually have the Mango Delight, or the Cashew one right before it! Great soup!

Easy to find location on Hwy. 101, yet we didn't notice any traffic noise. The atmosphere was nice. We ordered appetizer, dinner & drinks. The service was quick, friendly & attentive. The server made it a point to ensure the desired level of spice in...More

We really enjoyed dinner here, prices were excellent (our Pad Thai with chicken was $10.95, glass of Chablis $5, and pale ale, $4) and the dish was robust albeit not authentic Thai. Rather it was a Thai/Western fusion, as the Pad Thai noodles were based...More
